Spicy coffee rubbed ribs

Meat. Coffee. Two of my favorite things, I decided to do an experiment. I Made an awesome spicy dry rub, rubbed it all over some pork ribs, slow roasted them and smothered them with my improvised Mother-In Laws home made BBQ sauce. 

The result? Best ribs I have ever had. You MUST TRY!!

Here is what you need :

Spicy coffee rub:

2 Tbs finely ground coffee
2 Tbs cayenne pepper 
2 tsp cumin
1 Tbs garlic powder 
1/2 cup brown sugar
Freshly ground pepper and salt to taste 

Best BBQ Sauce ever :(my mother-in-law's recipe)

1 Tbsp butter 
2 Tbsp finely minced onions 
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup ketchup 
1/3 cup honey garlic BBQ sauce 
2 Tbsp lemon juice 
2 Tbsp molasses 
1 1/4 tsp chilli powder 
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin 
1/2 tsp paprika 
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp pepper

SPECIAL SAUCE.... Jumpin' Jackass grilling sauce. This is from a local company in the Okanagan, it has the most unreal flavour and is super spicy. Add any kind of hot sauce as you probably wont be able to find this. :( 

- melt butter and add onions and garlic
- cook and stir until onions have softened, about a min
- add all remaining ingredients and mix well
- simmer uncovered over low heat about 5 mins

Here is what to do with the pork :

Mix all of the ingredients for the rub together in a small bowl. Rub rub rub all over your succulent pork ribs, both sides. Now let it sit covered in the fridge like this for a few hours to a day. I left it over night. 

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Place the ribs meat side up in one layer on several sheet pans and bake, turning from time to time, until very tender, 3½ to 4 hours. About 30 minutes before the ribs are done, remove them from the oven and brush liberally on all sides with the barbecue sauce. Bake until very tender. 

When the ribs are done cooking, cut them up into individual pieces and place them all in a big tupperware with a lid. Load in the hot BBQ sauce and give it a nice shake, not too hard, the meet could fall off!! 

ENJOY with a nice cold beer! (GIB winter ale was my choice) I am obsessed with these ribs, let me know how yours turn out!!
